VOICE offers speakers a unique thought leadership opportunity to share their expertise and best practices with over 5000 developers, designers, leading brands and agencies who are currently re-imagining how we interact with technology through voice. Each speaker will receive a complimentary registration to the event and a discount code to share with colleagues.
What is VOICE Summit 2019?
VOICE is the largest conversational design, development and marketing event of the year that brings together more than 5000 all those seeking to stay ahead of this exciting transformation of how we interact with virtually every product and service we touch. The program includes keynotes, talks, product launches, hands-on workshops, a startup EXPO, VOICE-first Awards, a hackathon and numerous networking events throughout the week.
Who speaks at VOICE Summit?
Executives, innovators, developers and designers leading/executing voice + AI initiatives for major brands, not for profits, and private and governmental organizations. All speakers and presenters are those willing to share their expertise and connect with the global voice-first audience.
Is there a theme?
As always, inclusion and connectivity is the underlying purpose for a Modev event. From a content perspective, like last year, we’re letting the theme of the event be guided by the content that the global voice-first audience puts forward. VOICE Summit will reflect the emerging voice technologies, methods and applications that are driving transformation.

Can I submit multiple talks?

Do you offer expense reimbursements for speakers?
With more than 150 speakers, we’re not in a position to offer expenses for our speakers. However, we do provide an event pass, a ton of promotion and our promise that you’ll enjoy your VOICE experience. If you’re representing yourself and on a budget, please reach out to us and we’ll discuss options. It’s possible that we could find a sponsor to support your trip, but we cannot make any promises. We’ll do our best to ensure all selected speakers can attend VOICE.
You'll have an opportunity to edit this proposal in the future. We do ask for sample presentations if you've given this talk before to help the selection committee with the evaluation process. No worries if you don't have one, we love new material as well.
We really appreciate your submission.
